Pensive

Willow Wand

In 1992, whilst at a Wiccan retreat, I chanced upon a small maple branch with three offshoots, one of which still had a dried bud, upon the forest floor.  Using the cat gut cord Leigh used to sell at Rainbows and Moonbeams, I affixed a crystal to one of the other twigs, and a crow's feather found the same day in the same vicinity to the longest of the offshoots.  That wand served me well for almost 20 years.  Unfortunately, it was broken in the move out here to San Diego, so I had to get a new wand.  I bought a simple Willow wand from Azure Green, and have been decorating and personalising it for the past month.  It is charged with runes representing air, along with my Craft name in both Theban and Rhyllan.  All symbols and letters were then covered up by various metallic colours, and adorned with a clear quartz crystal point.  To see the wand's details better, click the pic to go to the full sized image.

So, what do you think?  I was pondering on perhaps getting some plain wands in bulk from some provider. Hopefully, Azure Green sells them in bulk.  I will write and ask when I'm ready to proceed...  Anyway, I was considering decorating wands like this and selling them to interested parties.  What say you?  Would it be worth my while to do something like this?  Or should I not even waste my time?
